Queen Catherine Leatham and her king Dagger Dave invite you to attend the fifth annual Krewe of Helios-Arizona Mardi Gras Parade and Party - the only official Mardi Gras parade in the Grand Canyon State!

Come eat our gumbo, drink our beer, catch our beads and raise a glass to the Pelican State as we celebrate Louisiana culture and try to purge ourselves of those six harrowing words that no Cajun, coon-ass or 'Yat ever wants to hear again: BROWNIE, YOU'VE DONE A HECKUVA JOB!

Come witness the pageantry of our fourth annual parade as it makes several historic laps around the North 74th Place cul de sac - you're sure to catch tons of beads as I guarantee our parade is slower than a FEMA ice truck. And no, we don't earn our beads by removing our clothing - this is Scottsdale, not Babe's Cabaret, people (oh wait, that is Scottsdale!) You are, however, welcome to ENTER your float in our fabulous parade, competing for valuable prizes (OK, a cool Mardi Gras pimp-hat) as you attempt to unseat defending parade champions, Chris and Kristi Walsh, and their 2005 entry: Mardi Paws.

If you'd like to enter the parade, be at the house at 4:30 PM to load your float with beads and to receive your official KREWE OF HELIOS-ARIZONA 2006 T-SHIRT.

Step off for the parade is 5 PM sharp!
If you're not there at 5, I guarantee you'll miss it, because (as if we have to remind you) WE DON'T HAVE THE NECESSARY PERMITS TO HAVE A PARADE. Thus, we're going to make our historic loops around the cul de sac until we run out of beads, and then retreat inside faster than Brownie headed for half-price margaritas at Happy Hour!

See you Saturday, February 25, 2006!
Laissez les bon temps roulez!

Patrick and Stacy Bertinelli
Krewe of Helios-Arizona Captains
